Ren'Py specific questions should be posted in the Ren'Py Questions and Annoucements forum, not here.
However i am in a bit of a problem myself. Never thought coding will give me this much of a trouble then making art works and story writing. Now its either 2 option i have at hand either to learn coding from top to bottom or to hire someone who knows programming. But here's the thing though; if i learn programming myself then i need to start from scratch and a person who have to tutor me which i dont think anyone would do and secondly if i decide to hire a programmer...welll.... i dont have any money to hire a programmer but if a programmer is willing to take a risk and decide to help me then i will surely pay for his hard work after i make some profit from my game. But good news is that programmer don't need to spent a lot of time on my project becz its a long term project and that i will release alpha versions of my game to crowd-funding websites like patreon. So any tips or any help....like any thing would help cuz i am in a crisis now and i am almost done with backgrounds and character creations but stuck with programming.

There's also a TON of support available here on this forum; if you're having any trouble figuring out how to do or fix something, there is a solution for you here on the forums!
For example, I'm messing around with a lot of the stuff from the Ren'py Cookbook forum here for stuff like RPG battle screens, hidden picture games, simple puzzles, card games, etc. That stuff can get a bit more complicated, but most of the actual programming is solved for you. You just need to change some numbers and filenames here and there.

I suppose my advice would be to learn what you feel comfortable with (and simple things like how affection points, menu branching and things like that work). And then from there you could either learn how to use the more complicated template codes that are already available in the ren'py cookbook or seek help from someone to program the more complicated aspects of your game. Keep in mind that there are some people out there who are willing to work for free, so if you don't have money to hire people, I would recommend giving that a shot.
Edit: I've looked through some of your posts and I think that you're probably pretty much on the right track already, so I take my advice to be void at this point.
All the best with your future projects! Just know that if you ever have a problem with programming and all that, the lemmasoft forums are full of supportive people who are always willing to help

I didn't know anything besides basic html 2 years ago, and now I can code just about anything I want. It's probably a lot easier and a lot more fun than you'd expect.
The biggest thing you'll have to do is devote time to learning. The benefit is that you'll save money and learn an awesome, new skill!
Good luck, love!
